Narrow frames. Still not there.
Monkey is right, oliver peoples are made for people with small head/narrow faces. A bit pricy though in comparison to the ones you have tried.Looks pretty good though. It pays off trying something else besides club masters and creepy cat lady glasses. Have you tried Oliver peoples? They tend to be on the narrower side.
Sometime this month I'll meet Mrs Dropbear for lunch near a high-end optician or else go with her to Costco. Our tastes don't always align, but she does have to stare at my mug more than anyone else. She saw the above frames on the table lastnight and said 'yuck, too round like coke bottles', so we may not find much common ground but at least I have a better idea what works and what I like.
While I started out looking for some thicker keyhole acetate wayfarer, club master or Arnel style frames - I'm actually leaning more to the minimalist titanium styles I tried last week.
Might try something like these next, Randolph Engenieering P3:

Thoughts? Maybe try some aviators?
dropbear - you've got a strong mature interesting face - its not a featureless baby face like most igents. You don't need heavy frames to add some interest. - I'd suggest going to rimless or semi rimless or at least minimalist.
What about something more rectangle instead of round/oval?As I mentioned above, I'm also leaning towards something minimalist like the bronze wire rim round glasses above. I do love the look of some of these acetate frames I've tried, but they just don't seem to suit me.
